The Future is Bright

This week the YouVersion development team came together and planned out the next few core releases. There has been a lot of activity here at the YouVersion Ranch…a lot of phone calls, a lot of faxing, and a lot of…well…planning. And as you are reading this, I know you are thinking…phone calls and faxing??? Why? Well, phone calls and faxing is how you work with publishers, and there has been a lot of that going on!

The Future is Bright…and over the next few weeks we will be releasing Beta R7.0 and sharing some cool news with you guys! Stay tuned, and subscribe so you don’t miss it.

Welcome, North Point Community Church!

To our friends from North Point Community Church, Buckhead Church, and Browns Bridge Community Church we say welcome! As you explore the Bible during “Text,” we hope that YouVersion can provide a place for you to experience Scripture in a meaningful way. You can organize content that’s important to you, connect with others, and share content with your family, friends, or anyone online.

We are excited to have you join the community!

YouVersion Beta R6.5

YouVersion Beta R6.5 is live, and you can now enjoy the goodness. Why you might be asking is this 6.5 and not R7? Well, it is actually not a full release, it is a release update or a release patch. Most of the updates you can see are highly focused around fixing many Internet Explorer 6 bugs and display challenges.

However, there are a few nice bonuses. R6.5 does clean up your account pages, and your account edit pages. We also added a great way to share YouVersion with you friends, you can simply go to
to see more. But, the biggest bonus is we added the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB).

Enjoy Beta R6.5. Let us know what you think.
